Mpumalanga Alumni Chapter: Business Networking and AGM

  USB Alumni AGM     1 Nov       Mpumalanga

USB alumni are invited to this Alumni Chapter Business Networking and AGM where Michiel Jonker, Director and Futurist in the advisory division at Grant Thornton, will talk about Geopolitical events in the world and how to make sense of them.

More about the topic:

Geopolitical events affect the world in profound ways. It is like a chess game, with a set number of possible actions to be pursued by nation states’ leaders. It is about hard realities and what states can and cannot control. The actions of major players on the world scene determine the ‘health’ of international relationships, and, without doubt, affects South Africa too.

We look forward to hosting you!

DATE: Thursday, 1 November 2018
TIME: 18:00 – 21:00

Business Dialogue and Breakfast

  • ALUMNI
  • 15 JUN 2018
  • PORT ELIZABETH

Permanent disability resulting from mental illness that develops in a working individual should be avoided at all costs. By appreciating how common mental disorders like anxiety or depression can ultimately result in permanent disability, it is important that mental health care providers understand the process involved and the responsibility of all the role players.

This breakfast talk by Prof Christoffel Grobler presents an approach to disability prevention by giving an overview of the disability process. This is done by addressing concepts such as why work is good for you and the adverse effect of not working, what Return-to-work and Stay-at-work strategies entail, what vocational rehabilitation means, the difference between impairment and disability, how psychiatric impairment is assessed, what is meant by maximum medical improvement and permanency, and how disability can be prevented if the role players involved were aware what their responsibilities are.

The urgency of avoiding long periods of sick leave will be emphasised, as work absence tends to perpetuate itself; that is, the longer someone is off work, the less likely they become ever to return.

DATE: Friday, 15 June 2018

TIME: 07:00 for 07:30 – 09:00

VENUE: The Club on Bird Street, Port Elizabeth | Map

Event Speaker

Prof Christoffel Grobler
Head Clinical Unit, Elizabeth Donkin Hospital, Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
